Sometimes, you just need a starting point. You need a direction. Every room does. For just over a year, I have been helping friends and their referrals out with their spaces by showing them the possibilities through mood boards. It's been an enjoyable ride--peaking into different homes via photos and seeing the potential burst through. And now I am opening the flood gates and accepting full-blown clients--even if we aren't related or friends....yet ;) for cheap--because I would hate for you to break the bank before your revamp even starts.
For $45*, you can expect a whole lot. When I make these personalized just-for-your-space mood boards, I take into consideration whether you can paint your walls, or not--or maybe you don't want to. I gladly consider inspiration pictures of spaces you have always loved. I keep in mind budget, and will let you know how to DIY the same look or piece or where you may find it cheaper. We'll discuss layout, art, colors, textiles, furniture, lighting, paint colors and anything else I feel would bring your space to its full potential.
I believe every home has its own personality, just like every person, and I never try to make someone else's room look just like a space I have in my home. Although, by the end of my search and compilation, I have usually bookmarked a few items to keep in mind for our house, too. Each hand-picked item in the mood board is numbered and comes with a (sometimes too detailed) explanation so that you feel empowered to get the room going on your own.
Do you have a room that you have been struggling with? Do you have a hard time pulling pieces together without buying a complete set at a furniture store. Eeeks. Let me help you! Send photos of your room in need (a few different angles helps) along with a note of what you hate, what you love, what you want to work with, and other details you would like me to know about to firstname.lastname@example.org
To see examples of what you can expect, check out these previous reader-commissioned mood boards that we have featured right here on our blog: Jane's, Deb's, Jen's, Meagan's, Jessie's, Jenessa's, Tanya's.
